“Tales of the Fish Patrol” at Jack London State Historic Park Oct. 10

 

Master storyteller Jeff Falconer will read from Jack London’s collection of short stories, “Tales of the Fish Patrol,” on Sunday, Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. to noon in the Oak Grove picnic area at Jack London State Historic Park. In these true stories of adventure, London recounts his teenage exploits as an oyster pirate turned fish patroller on the waterways of San Francisco, San Pablo, and Suisun Bays during the late nineteenth century; tired of working long days at an Oakland cannery for 12 cents an hour, the 15-year-old London longed for adventure and an opportunity to make more money.

This program is appropriate for all ages. A discussion will follow the reading. Meet in the ranch parking lot by turning right after the entry kiosk. Admission is $15 and free for members.
